My Frankonia 1985 pistol.  It was a solid gun when I bought it years ago but I refinished the bluing, polished the small parts, did some fix-up on it.  Exchanged the Frankonia extended slide latch for one from a Swiss AT-84 which is longer than the CZ part.  Also replaced the mag latch, don't like an extended mag latch except on a competition gun.

Interesting stuff.

I have a CZ 85 with a squared off trigger guard, skinny hammer, fixed factory night sights and the serial number starts with an A91**.  Has import information regarding a company in Philadelphia.  Serial is stamped on the frame, slide and barrel.  No firing pin block.
